Ontario boys soccer cap successful year, six sign to TVCC

ONTARIO – The Ontario Tigers boys soccer team had its best season ever this past year, finishing third in the District 4A Elite 8 Showcase tournament. While it was the highest finish in school history, it was also a bittersweet end for those on the team. 

“The game was 0-0 going into the half and we were told that it was the first time all year Stayton High School hadn’t scored before halftime. We ended up losing 1-0 in the semifinals and they went on to be the eventual state champions,” said Jaime Gonzalez, Ontario boys soccer coach.

While losing hurt for a team that aspired to take the title, Gonzalez said the team was looking forward to playing Marist Catholic for the third-place trophy before Marist Catholic forfeited the match. That meant that not only was the season . . .
